Today's Healthy Decisions: Weapons Against COVID
“You may not be as physically fit as you were in the past, but there is a lot you can do to stay healthy,” according to Leumas Security Services' Founder, Samuel Griffin III. He encourages you to keep your health in mind in this week’s video.
Griffin’s new book, Rent-A-Cop Reboot, also addresses the importance of health to those in the security industry. Throughout the book there are reminders about the importance of eating well, sleeping well, and conducting yourself in a variety of ways that can help keep you safe and healthy.
“Check the forecast for wherever you are working,” Griffin writes, “and make sure you have clothing that will keep you as comfortable as possible. This includes your footwear. Too often, I worked in shoes that did not give my feet enough support, and suits that were heavier than necessary. That puts a lot of unnecessary strain on your body.”
Finding ways to maintain your health is especially important as we deal with COVID-19. The pandemic has now claimed the lives of more than 283,000 Americans, and more than 1.5 million people around the world.
“Masks, hand washing, and social distancing are great weapons against COVID-19,” Griffin says. “Combine those practices with good eating and sleeping habits, and you’re likely to get a great return on your health investments. That’s a level of success that I hope everyone can reach.”
